Patricio Freire proved once again he’s one of the top featherweight fighters in the world, stopping former UFC standout, Diego Nunes in the first round. He’s now won five out his last six fights, only losing a closely-contested split decision to champ Pat Curran at Bellator 85.

Fabricio Guerreiro earned his first Bellator victory and advanced to the semifinals with a unanimous decision win over Desmond Green in the opening round of this year’s featherweight tournament. Guerreiro made his promotional debut in Bellator’s season eight’s tournament, but exited in the quarterfinals after being submitted by Magomedrasul Khasbulaev.

Joe Taimanglo extended his current win streak to ten straight victories with a unanimous decision win over Andrew Fisher in the quarterfinals. Notable victories during the streak include a submission victory over UFC-veteran Per Eklund, and a submission win over Ronnie Rogers in his Bellator debut in March.

Former Strikeforce roster member, Just Wilcox returned to action for the first time in 14-months, to submit Akop Stepanyan in the second round to advance to this season’s 145-pound tournament quarterfinals. Wilcox wasn’t transferred to the UFC after the merger with Strikeforce, likely due to back-to-back losses against Caros Fodor and Jorge Masvidal.
